Hey guys, quick question - how many of you are part of the MLT program? I just wonder how/if MLT works with the Consortium. I am not part of MLT and wondered if that is a disadvantage.


Not being part of MLT won't negatively impact your application. Being part of MLT has its own benefits, like peer support during the app, profile/essay help, and GMAT preparation. I think it is a valuable program, but if you are not a member don't fret about it. I am not a member (although if I had found out about them earlier I might have joined).

Good luck with your app!

greatmightypoo - The only advice I have seen online is that Haas might look down on 6 applications. I did bring this question directly to admissions member Morgan Bernstein when I talked to her at a Consortium event, and she said using all 6 spots was totally fine, but who knows if they view it poorly during admissions/scholarship determination.

I ended up applying to four schools (and not Haas), for what it's worth.


So relieved as well! Now up to complete my Sloan application and all done!

It was a race against the clock, but I was able to submit at 11:52 :D

So had issues with uploading the NYU Pick Six due to size of the images...which caused my app to be late by 3 mins!! My app says submitted at 12:02 AM 1/6 for round2 consortium. Does anyone know if this will negatively impact my apps or have heard of similar horror stories? super nervous.

Haha cut it close but you met the deadline, in the clear! :grin:

Same page for me! Sloan's prompt is so different than the others.

Also, I am curious ASPEBoston -- what is your area of interest? We have nearly the same schools on our application list!

Hey I heard of someone who had payment issues and ended up submitting at 12:02 in R1... It was still accepted, but not sure if it would impact negatively or not. I would call or email the consortium tomorrow to be sure :)

Hi guys. Does anyone know if the Consortium Fellowship covers the total cost of tuition? The literature on the site is vague.

It covers all tuition and fees... Basically everything except room & board, books and personal needs.

Thanks a lot. I guess I’m lucky I got a decent scholarship to hopefully go along with the Fellowship

Cool! I am interested in alternative energy and technology, both in a management role. I am interested in gaining some entrepreneurial experience too!

The one school you have that I do not is my alma mater :lol: was curious why you picked it -- great program for entrepreneurship, less so for energy/tech from what I have seen.

For those accepted to McCombs through the Consortium in R1, is your deposit deadline Feb 8? This is prior to the Consortium draft meaning you’d have to pay the $2,000 non-refundable deposit before knowing whether you would receive a fellowship. This assumes you did not rank McCombs #1. Anyone else in this boat too?

Can you email them and ask if there is a separate deadline? For other schools, the CGSM deadline is after the draft.

I emailed them exactly that and they said they cannot extend the deadline and that I’d have to bite the bullet.

If you are set on McCombs, then you’ll have to bite the bullet. 2000 is nothing to scoff at, but it’s not that much in the grand scheme of things.

I received a USC and Kelley interview invitation, BUT both schools will be in NYC for inside the MBA so perhaps it’s tied to that.

Kelley invited me to interview on campus, in NYC or via video.

USC is at a NYC hotel.

Anyone else in this boat?

I doubt it’s a matter of the Consortium sharing my application because my most recent GMAT score is still en route.

So maybe it’s purely because I expressed interest in the Programs?

Will definitely interview with both.
